DAWN YOULL | CERAMICS
There is lots of interesting ceramics to be found on the Marsden Woo gallery, including the work of Carol mcNicholl whose whose pieces were recently featured on BBC 4's excellent documentary Ceramics : A fragile History but it was Dawn Youll's work that really stood out to me on the gallery site. Maybe its all about that contrast again..a traditional medium coupled with a modern subject matter in this case..an urban landscape.
Dawn Youll is a ceramicist living and working in Glasgow. Inspiration comes from her surroundings - the urban landscape, the studio environment and the making process itself. By combining forms and surfaces she creates curious compositions on a domestic scale "to communicate, celebrate and make sense of the world around us"
